Salinger's writing style really just scratches a certain itch in my brain. This was fantastic. ( )

this book produced such a different reaction from the first time I read it, 50-60 years ago. Not only did I not like it, I was offended by much of it. And itr also was so boring with so many tedious and also body-related details. Franny was also desperately in need of psychiatric help, but was frequently belittled for her thoughts and feelings. She no doubt was attempting to achieve perfection, as aare many. The life of the family in their very overcrowded apartment due to their hoarding was desperately in need of help, but that would have felt like to defeat to many of them. ( )

The facts at hand presumably speak for themselves, but a trifle more vulgarly, I suspect, than facts even usually do.


I expected to dislike this. "Franny," the short story that proceeds the novella "Zooey" mostly reinforced that expectation and made me think I would be in for a long, slogging reading for such a short book. But it turned out to be a pretty interesting and non-traditional story about a family, and needless to say, there is a lot of flair in Salinger's prose.

First off, Zooey is a guy. I went into the story thinking it would be about two female friends, two sisters, etc. But Franny and Zooey are actually brother and sister, the youngest of the Glass kids (a family Salinger apparently wrote about in some of his other works). They were all famous as kids for regularly appearing on a quiz show. They were basically over-educated to the exclusion of other things. The story in "Franny" is picked up by the "Zooey" part. While "Franny" provides important backstory, it's not until reading "Zooey" that you see it fitting into a wider story.

While this is one of the books this year that I think I'll be most glad I read, there are definitely a couple of points that give me pause:

1. There is so much mansplaining in this book. First Lane, then Buddy kinda, then Zooey. In fact, they even define the book's different parts.

2. A 25-year-old man talking down to his mother, calling her fatty, living in her house. Maybe it's time to get a damn job, huh, buddy?

3. A lot of ego for people who call the ego of others "lousy."

All in all though, I was pretty amused by this family and the consequences they are dealing with due to their quiz-show background. I would definitely seek out Salinger's other stories about them. ( )

Bello nel modo in cui sa esserlo Salinger, anche se il primo racconto - brevissimo - rasenta la perfezione mentre il secondo eccede nell'intellettualismo dei dialoghi, che però regalano non poche perle. A proposito, la frase più divertente del libro: “Le note a piè di pagina sono un’offesa all’estetica, ma qui temo sia inevitabile farne una”. ( )

Franny and Zooey is one of the few books that I've returned to every year...I love it for its comedy--Salinger's dialogue is wonderful--for its mocking fondness, and as a portrait of a troubled, loving family. I still treasure it and I don't think I've read anything since that has affected me and inspired me as much, both as a reader and a writer.

You can see Salinger's increasing mastery on page after page...If the world survives, as it shows a magnificently stubborn intention of doing, Mr. Salinger's stories will decidedly continue to widen the range of contemporary reading.

Brilliant...What makes reading Salinger such a consistently bracing experience is our sense of always being in the presence of something that--whatever it is--isn't fishy.
toegevoegd door vibesandall | bewerkNew York Review of Books, Janet Malcolm
 
A lo largo de "Franny y Zooey", Salinger ahonda en las complejidades de la psique humana y en la búsqueda de la autenticidad en un mundo que a menudo parece poco sincero. La novela refleja el estilo característico de Salinger, marcado por diálogos agudos, un rico desarrollo de los personajes y un enfoque en las luchas internas de sus protagonistas. La exploración de la espiritualidad y la tensión entre lo secular y lo divino contribuyen al perdurable atractivo de "Franny y Zooey" como obra que aborda cuestiones intemporales sobre la identidad y el propósito.

As nearly as possible in the spirit of Matthew Salinger, age one, urging a luncheon companion to accept a cool lima bean, I urge my editor, mentor and (heaven help him) closest friend, William Shawn, genius domus of the New Yorker, lover of the long shot, protector of the unprolific, defender of the hopelessly flamboyant, most unreasonably modest of born great artist-editors, to accept this pretty skimpy-looking book.

Franny: Though brilliantly sunny, Saturday morning was overcoat weather again, not just topcoat weather, as it had been all week and as everyone had hoped it would stay for the big weekend - the weekend of the Yale game.
Zooey: The facts at hand presumably speak for themselves, but a trifle more vulgarly, I suspect, than facts even usually do.
